Hi Michael, yes you can change the color of a specific calendar. To do so, do the following:

1. Tap the small 3 dashed lines on the upper-right hand corner of the app (over-flow drawer)
2. Tap "Calendars"
3. Tap the colored box for any of the listed calendars to change its color
4. Tap the desired color

One thing to note, is that it appears as though you can not return the color to its default once it has been changed.

Hope this helps!

Also note that you may need to restart the app for the color change to take place.

Thanks Victor Thompson, that solved my question.

Unfortunately, this does not work on my Meizu Pro 5. How do you change the calendar color in the new app version?

Okay, solved the problem by myself. The color selection is still possible. However, this does not work in list view. Choose, e.g., day view and then press the calendar icon with a 25 in it (upper right corner). This brings you to the calendar list where you can choose the color of each individual calendar.
