I believe they correspond to the colors you have assigned on the actual google calendar website. If you change it there, it should change on your phone.

Just confirmed it. Change the color on the website, and then manually refresh on your phone and watch the colors change right before your eyes.

Love the integration!!!

I've been able to change the colors in the gmail calendar by going to settings for each "calendar". However, I can't edit the green for my Outlook calendar that is updated when I sync with my pc. Where is that color?

i changed the calendar colors on my pc but when I go to calendar on my phone they all stay 1 color. If I use the agenda widget the colors are different but the monthly calendar view is what I need to work. Any advice?

I'm gonna give this a bump. I got a Galaxy S, and the default Outlook color is a really ugly purple. Is there any way to change this, or is there a decent replacement calendar available?

OK, need some help with this please.

I have my Google Calendar set up. I picked Blue for my events. I also have my wife's on mine and her events are red. This is set up on my desktop.

But on my Desire both of our events are red. How do I fix this?

I ran into this one as well, but completely accidentally found a solution.

Install "Pocket Informant", its a taskmanager app that syncs with Toodledo. But in one of its options screens it lets you change the standard calendar colors, without having to root the device.

I fixed my unreadable outlook calendar; maroon red with black text, to be yellow now, works like a charm.

Couldn't find the trial version referenced above in the Andriod Market. This app is free and also works well on my Galaxy SII

Awesome! Thanks for the tip; amazing how sometimes if you just searched the market for exactly what you wanted you'd find it easily :-)

Laugh Changing Calendar Color on Google Calendar

The calendar and task color in the synced google calendar are controlled by the online google account. Log in to your google account on a computer. Go into the Calendar (online) and change the colors there. You can pick any colors on that Gmail calendar.

I'm not sure how to change colors on non google calendars. (or just download the 'set calendar color' app on Google Play Store)

Greetings. I have a confusing situation. Recently I had to erase clear all my files in my calendar because I could not delete them the normal way. However, now I seem to be missing the Exchange ActiveSync in my calendar (even though it says it's already there in add accounts) and also, due to my "resetting" my task colors in multi-calendars do not match. In "my tasks" the color is light purple but in the calendar it is a dark purple and also in "my tasks" in another list, the color is green, but again in calendar it is blue. As I said above, they matched before I 'reset'. Please excuse the confusion. I have an HTC one V.
Thanx for all your help.
