This solution article will applies to SharePoint online, SharePoint Server 2016, 2013 & 2010, SharePoint Foundation 2013.
So let’s start with small description about set what is Calendar and calendar overlay:
SharePoint calendar: can use a calendar to store team events, including meetings, social events, and all-day events. We can also track team milestones, such as deadlines or product release dates that are not specific to a time interval.
SharePoint calendar overlay: This feature allows users to view the data of several different lists in one color-coded Calendar List. SharePoint calendar overlay colors help us display differences between various kinds of events in your organize.
