You can use blending modes for that. Set the blending mode of the second 
image to "darken" (instead of "normal") and the result will be the 
darker of the image and whatever is behind it (the banner), it is in 
Properties/Transparency/Blend mode of the second image. That will make 
the white parts (where it is brighter than the background) effectively 

 From my experience, though, beware that many (professional) printers 
will fail to do the blending properly, probably having 
old/non-conformant RIP, so always double-check the pre-print first.
