How do I change a calendar’s color in iOS 4.2.1?

It seems like it just assigns random color when you add a calendar.

Is there a way to change calendar color on iOS 4? I'd like to pick a color for each calendar...

Normally we close down to the oldest question, but in this case iOS 4 was hard to manage colors, iOS 5 got better and it's not an issue on iOS 6 as things now just work. – bmike Dec 3 '12 at 18:30

The only way I know how to do it is in iCal (providing you have a Mac). Ctrl+click on the Calendar along the left side of the screen >> Get Info >> Click the color selector on the right to change the color. Here's a screenshot

It seems impossible directly on the iPhone/iPod. I have a MobileMe account, and I can change the calendar colours from within the MobileMe web interface. Maybe this is possible with other snychable calendars (Google, Outlook, iCal), too. But I have none of them to try it.

I sync with Google Calendar using Exchange. The color on Google Cal does not transfer over to iPhone cal. – Brian Kim Aug 24 '10 at 16:14
That's a pity. Just tried it with MobileMe, and it worked. Too bad that it is not for free. – Martin Aug 25 '10 at 6:45
