Google Calendar event images

When we create events in Google Calendar, there's a chance you might end up with a customized image that will allow for a easier visual inspection of our calendar.

Google Calendar flairs have been around for years, but I've just recently noticed it when adding a Karate event and being surprised with a Kimono on the event card. After some googling around I found out there are dozens of these "flairs" for lots of different activities, and I just didn't notice it sooner because the Google Calendar app shows up images related to the event location (such as street view imagery).

Thankfully there was already a list of all the flairs you can get in Calendar. The following list shows each flair ID, as well as the keywords that trigger it.
