Liturgical year clip art

Can someone help with what each part represents in the liturgical year?

Hi Gofnyssa,
Starting from the symbol just to the left of the top, here's what it looks like it means, I'm a little confused about the last two though:

Advent
The Alpha and the Omega (the Beginning and the End) a big focus during Advent.

Christmas
Maybe it's the star of Bethlehem.

Lent
The Crown of Thorns and the Cross.

Easter
The rising sun; symbolizing the Resurrection.

Pentecost
Maybe the key is symbolizing the birthday of the Church.

Possibly Corpus Christ or the Ascension?
It seems like it would be the Ascension but the Ascension happens before Pentecost and Corpus Christi happens after Trinity Sunday so i'm not sure.

Maybe Trinity Sunday.
That is a symbol of the trinity.

That is great, thank you.

I was looking at it in the wrong way, I thought the crown might have been Feast of Christ the King showing the end of liturgical year.

I was thinking that the Alpha-Omega one was for Christ the King.

Where did these symbols come from? They look more like they refer to titles for Christ than for seasons.
