Tricks to add an image near the title of your drupal theme.
1st method: open page.tpl.php find the tag where the title will be written in (find print $title variable) in the code and change the template to add for example an inline div(make sure that css is well written to obtain the wanted result).
2nd method(keep it simple): add a css selector in your style.css:
background:url("images/arrow.png") no-repeat scroll 0 4px transparent;
3rd method: go to this good blog post to use the phptemplate engine for variables rewriting: http://www.rahulsingla.com/blog/2010/02/add-imageshtml-in-drupal-node-titles
