NEW YORK – If you’re curious about the ‘House of the Dragon’-inspired Westeros banners flying in iconic New York City locations, don’t worry.

They are fake.

Videos and images circulating on social media appear to show banners representing two factions of ‘House of the Dragon’ flying over the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges – and even the Empire State Building. The videos say it’s time for people to pick a side and choose between green and black teams, which represent the factions.

The videos have each been viewed more than a million times.

It is part of a promotional campaign for the new season of HBO’s ‘House of the Dragon’, the prequel series to the wildly popular ‘Game of Thrones’.

It’s not just New York City landmarks that have gotten a digital makeover. Additional videos show Mexico’s Chapultepec Castle with the digitally added banners, along with Sugarloaf Mountain in Brazil.

Some viewers on X seemed unsure whether the banners actually flew or were computer generated. Others seemingly joined in on the fun, calling it a “disgrace to Brooklyn” for flying the green flag.
