add image to Newsflash module layout in Joomla template

I want to add an image to display below the title of the Newsflash module.

I can not find where/how to do that - what files to modify.

The Newsflash is set up to display in the right module position.  Ideally, I'd also like to control the display parameters using the Module Class Suffix for Newsflash (if that is how you would do it).

Here is what I have displaying currently (see attached1).

Here is what I want to display (see attached 2).

the image file I want to display is "NewsFlash1.png"

    Create a new "Custom HTML" module, name it newflashtitle, insert the "Newflash" caption title and the image. Publish it and order it to be before the real Newflash module. Then hide the title in the real newflash module and in the newflashtitle module.

    OK - I got that part.  makes sense.

    But I'm not sure which file to edit so the newsflashtitle module appears before newsflash, and only when newsflash appears.

    Any suggestions?

    Nothing to edit.

    In the backend go to Extensions, Module manager. There create the new module (button "New"). In the wizar select Custom HTML. In the details you can change the position (select "right") and the order (select the position that now have the Newflash module). Also select "off" in "Show Title" field.

    Maybe you will have to come back and edit the module again to adjusts some settings but thats the general idea.
