DC Comics posted a message on Instagram saying that the set decorators of Legends of Tomorrow have placed easter eggs that reference DC properties.

Legends of Tomorrow - Easter Eggs

I am able to see a few

  • Old Red Tornado helmet on the table
  • Pied Piper's flute
  • Sgt. Rock helmet

On Instagram the comments also make mention of

  • Orion's helmet; other say it's closer to S.T.R.I.P.E. Is either true?
  • Green lantern ring/lantern (I don't see this though)

What other DC properties are referenced in this photo (and where are they)?

  • The lantern is on a shelf at the back of the room.

  • Is it significant that the lady's right hand is exposed but the left hand is hidden? Jan 21, 2016 at 16:01
  • It is not Orion's helmet in any way: lot different, Orion never got a closed one, and it totally miss the small, iconic side wings. But speaking of iconics things, it's pretty obvious where the confusion came from: the guy's arms and hands position are exactly those of Orion. Probably unwillingly :-D

You have already identified:

  1. Sgt. Rock's helmet (on the first person from the left)
  2. Pied Piper's flute (being played by the person in the middle with the leather trench coat)
  3. Ma Hunkel's Old Red Tornado helmet (on the table at the extreme left of the photo)

We also have...

  1. A lantern from Green Lantern Corps on the top shelf at the back of the room:

  1. The helmet worn by the individual at the right seems to be the DCAU-version of S.T.R.I.P.E.'s helmet (notice the two circles on top):

  1. The individual at the right wearing S.T.R.I.P.E.'s helmet is miming Orion's trademark stance:

  1. On the bottom shelf at the back, we see Pandora's skull:

  1. On the table in the foreground, we see the lost scrolls of Herculaneum, magical items found in the DC universe.
  • Rorschach's trenchcoat seems like a stretch; unless I'm very much mistaken that's Arthur Darvill, and the coat is part of his regular costume Jan 23, 2016 at 4:55
  • @JasonBaker : Definitely Darvill, but I thought his regular coat wasn't leather and was a different shade. But the filter on this photo could just be playing tricks with my eyes. :-)

  • Hm, I suppose it could be a different coat. Hard to be sure with the lighting though Jan 23, 2016 at 5:01

That may be the new Guardian's helmet - Jimmy Olsen is taking on the mantle of Guardian in Supergirl, and the mask in the art looks a bit like that

And technically, Rip's coat is an artifact - he got it from Jonah Hex.
