We've created assets directory in our Flutter app to store all our images used in this project and defined that in pubspec.yaml file

# To add assets to your application, add an assets section, like this:
- assets/explore.png
- assets/2.0x/explore.png
# An image asset can refer to one or more resolution-specific "variants", see
# https://flutter.io/assets-and-images/#resolution-aware.
# For details regarding adding assets from package dependencies, see
# https://flutter.io/assets-and-images/#from-packages
# To add custom fonts to your application, add a fonts section here,
# in this "flutter" section. Each entry in this list should have a
# "family" key with the font family name, and a "fonts" key with a
# list giving the asset and other descriptors for the font. For
# example:
# fonts:
# - family: Schyler
# fonts:
# - asset: fonts/Schyler-Regular.ttf
# - asset: fonts/Schyler-Italic.ttf
# style: italic
# - family: Trajan Pro
# fonts:
# - asset: fonts/TrajanPro.ttf
# - asset: fonts/TrajanPro_Bold.ttf
# weight: 700
# For details regarding fonts from package dependencies,
# see https://flutter.io/custom-fonts/#from-packages
