How do I display a Calendar Icon as part of the NG Bootstrap DatePicker?

I'm working on a project that uses ng-bootstrap, an Angular Library based on Bootstrap styles. I'm using the DatePicker and set it using their samples as a guide.

This is what I want to see:

But this is what I see:

Where is the fancy icon?

The CSS to create that graphic button is not in their base CSS for some reason. In past versions I've used an image. This time it takes some CSS Magic:

button.calendar, button.calendar:active {
width: 2.75rem;
background-image: url('data:image/png;base64,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') !important;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: 23px;
background-position: center;

The image is no longer external, but created in-line. In my Angular project, I added this to the main styles.css to solve the problem.
