I can change the date format for most dates displayed by my calendar to Irish format, however I can’t find how to change this one.

enter image description here

The dates at the top of each day are shown as 5/17 or Month/Day—as a European, I would like to be able to display them as 17/5, but that doesn’t seem to be possible from my reading of the configuration settings.

Any ideas?

  1. Go to Settings (Cog wheel on the upper-right side)
  2. Search for Date format

  3. Switch to 31/12/2012
  4. Click Save at to the or bottom of the settings page

    Hah, also worked for me. I've had yyyy-MM-dd format, which was also causing the dates on the top of the day displayed in reverse format. Quite confusing ;)

    This behaviour is clearly a bug. I prefer yyyy-MM-dd format everywhere and have configured that in the settings, but the day headings aren't displaying as that, they are displaying as MM/dd, which is simply wrong. (The '-' vs '/' indicates the order of components for me.) Aug 19, 2013 at 22:29
