Search for CAMEL_MESSAGE_INFO_USER_FLAGS and uses of mi->user_flags in
Camel (better search for "->user_flags" as that mi part is sometimes
called info and sometimes with a bunch of casting around it called mi).

In camel-imap-folder.c you can take an example from functions like
flags_to_label. I guess you'll need to convert your user_flags to custom
IMAP flags somehow. Not sure how easy that is. 

You can also add new tags (user_tags), which is similar to how
user_flags work in Camel. It looks like those are already stored
remotely. I think tags define the colour of the rows in your summary
view (Important, Personal, Work, etc etc).

You'll have to write ui pieces for this too, in Evolution, of course.
