How do I change the display date format in the team calendar?

Can I change the format of the date displayed when clicking on an event in Team Calendar?
Its default value is '16 May'. I want it to be displayed in something like 'May 16' or '05-16'.

The date format is dependent on your language settings and automatically adjusts accordingly - this is a Confluence user and global setting. An admin can set the site default language (see Choosing a Default Language ) and you can also set your preference (see Edit Your User Settings ).


I changed the language setting, but no matter which language is set, Day is displayed first, followed by Month. I want to display the month, followed by the day, such as'MM DD'.

What you are saying seems to correspond to date lozenges.
Team Calendar seems to behave differently. :(

Oh, I'm based on the official Atlassian FAQ documentation -

I know that Team Calendar is sensitive to web browser language settings, which can also affect its appearance.
