I don't remember seeing anything like that in the Objects, although someone may have one stashed somewhere.
A possible solution is to make the design using a graphic editor like Gimp or Photoshop, making sure to set the background transparent. Then import the image as a billboard. If you place an object like this in front of the camera, and make the camera it's vehicle, you should be ready to roll.
The closer you move the image to the camera, the smaller it needs to be, and you can move into and out of view easily.

Forgot- Don't save it in formats like JPEG that don't support transparency. Use PNG or GIF.
An easier option might be to add a Torus. Shrink, color, reposition, and lock to camera.
