I color code my calendars on my laptop - but annoyingly, that formatting doesn't seem to carry over onto my iPhone

Any tips to get this to work?

Looks like I may have a solution, according to Lifehacker

"If you set up your Google Calendar to sync using CalDAV, the calendar colors sync seamlessly between your iOS device and Google Calendar. If you add a calendar or change a calendar color on Gcal, the colors will sync to your device. Just turn off calendar sync on your Exchange account, and enable it via CalDAV."

Not sure what CalDAV is, but I just went into my browser and changed the color in Google Calendar and it synced that way to my phone. Reference picture.
