When i look outside the window, i see a yellow chrysantium
Even when there is nothing, i see a yellow chrysantium...

In shop.product_details.php before

*   Read the template file into a String variable.
*   Then replace the placeholders with HTML formatted product details
* function read_file( $file, $defaultfile='') ***/

add this

if ($db_product->f("product_special") == "Y") {
    $product_special = "<img src='".IMAGEURL."ps_image/prod_special.png'>"; }
else {
    $product_special = "";

You'll have to create the image you want in ps_image and call it like the above or rename the above

at the end of the list that looks like this add this

$template = str_replace( "{product_special}", $product_special, $template );

you'll then have to add a tag in your flypage of {product_special} where you want the image to be placed.

Obviously enclose it in a div and assign a class then you can do the positioning with css
