Help me design a flag (also, anyone know any ancient Greek?)

Yeah - so I have no idea what I'm doing here. I'm watching my girlfriend's dog this weekend, while she's off at a wedding across the country. Her dog is a relatively well-behaved Jack Russell who gets along with my two dogs excellently. However, she's a little intense sometimes (she IS a JRT), and needs time to relax in her crate. I've dubbed her crate "PRN" - the People's Republic of Nancy (not her real name - gf is a little weird about info on the interwebs, so I'm playing it safe).

I've decided that PRN needs its own flag. I think it will be something simple, a solid color field with her bright orange ball in the center. But I'd really like a slogan. Her family has a tradition of naming their pets after Greek words, so if it could be in Greek, that'd be great.

(Also, if anyone could point me to an English->Greek translator that spits out a non-Greek alphabet translation, if such a thing exists, that'd be great.)

"Motto" is the term you're looking for.

I can't help with the Greek, but I'll suggest "The Terrierists Have Already Won" for the English version of PRN's slogan.

For the motto, I'm thinking something that just randomly inserts the word "ball" into an already-established motto. In a pinch, I guess we could go latin.
