Hatay (officially known as the Republic of Hatay) was a country from 1938 to 1939 in Asia Minor. The leader of this nation was the Sultan, who ruled from the palace in Antakya. Some parts of the country were marked by dry mountains and canyons.

Behind the scenesEdit


The capital of Hatay in the film.

The depiction of Hatay in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is largely fictional. For example, in the movie Hatay, while called (and been in reality) a republic, is shown to be a monarchy headed by a Sultan; and the flag of Hatay as seen in the film is not based on the historical flag of the Republic of Hatay. In addition, the population is depicted as speaking Arabic, rather than more accurately speaking Turkish. The city used to stand in for the capital of Hatay is in fact Istanbul, Turkey.
