This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I think you mean Nautilus, the file browser, not Unity or Unity Dash correct? – Bruno Pereira Feb 26 '12 at 21:24
same as this?… – fossfreedom Feb 26 '12 at 21:35

No, but you can add emplems, which are small icons to be added on top of the file icon. You've seen that in your home directory. The music directory has an extra symbol, the documents folder, etc.

You can find out how to add such emblems here: Is there any tweak to bring back emblems in Nautilus?
