A spiral-bound calendar. Generally depicted as a monthly calendar, with a red or blue header. Apple and Samsung’s pages are curled up at the bottom right, as to flip for a new month.

WhatsApp's design shows in a green header February, when it was incorporated in 2009. Apple, Samsung, and JoyPixels’s designs show the month of July, when World Emoji Day falls on the 17th, a date Google specifically displays.
