Is it possible to embed an image inside a module so a custom report can use it?

I have created a custom report which defines:

<template id="header_custom">
<t t-name="header_custom">
<div class="header">
<div class="row">
<img class="img img-responsive" src="http://www.foobar.com/logo.png"/>
Foo Ltd.<br/>
Bar Street 10<br/>
99.999 Paris<br/>
                                                VAT: FRA0000000

The file structure in the custom module is:

¦___ __init__.py
¦___ __openerp__.py
¦___ xml
¦ ¦
¦ ¦___ custom_reports.xml
¦___ static
¦___ logo.png

So instead of using:

                                <img class="img img-responsive" src="http://www.foobar.com/logo.png"/>

I am wondering if I could do something like:

                                <img class="img img-responsive" src="../static/logo.png"/>

To allow distribution of images embedded inside the module

I think that your image path should be something like this:

Hi E.M,

The path to your image is invalid. It should be:

<img class="img img-responsive" src="/your_module_name/static/logo.png"/>


To the person who downvoted me: what is wrong with this answer?..
