How do I mark that my images are public domain and can appear in google images - advanced search with option "usage rights:free to use, share, or modify even commercially".

I want to mark my images so they appear in search results.

Your images may appear in Google images whether you want them to or not. You can use an image sitemap to increase your chances. Use the <image:license> tag to link to your license to show those usage rights.
