display flag and language name Joomla 1.7

Hi there,
first of all Merry Christmas to you all experts!
I need to do something really simple i think but i dont know what or how to modify the related file. First of all i have a website that support both languages English and Spanish. The site starts by pick up the browser language and if you want to change it you pick the flag to change it. This does work without problems, what i need to do is to add some verbiage something like read us on english  and the flag. On the spanish side i want to display leenos en Espanol and the flag. Somehow i know i need to modify the a php file some where. I'm thinking default.php inside modules/mod_languages but i'm not sure where exactly =(
can you experst tell me if im on the right track and what i need to modify to accomplish what i want.
Thanks all

You don't need to modify php file..

Go to Extensions>Language manager>Content Tab

Set Title Native of respective Languages.

Well it does display Francais but does not show the flag. What i want to do is to have the Language Name + the flag.
If i want to show the language i can just select display Language title and voila.

I have disabled flag on my site thats why it is not showing..This is standard requirement to show flags in Joomla 1.7

Image Prefix = Prefix of the image file for this language when using the "Use image flags" Language Switcher basic option. Example: if 'en' is chosen, then the image shall be en.gif. Images and CSS for this module are in media/mod_languages/ . Users can add any image/flag there with any prefix. Example: pt_br for the Brazilian flag.
