Removing Islamic calendar

I recently bought factory unlocked GT-I9505. It's suppose to be an international version, tho for some reason it has Islamic holidays on the calendar which I cannot remove, ie Ramadan. I have an option to change it on the S Planner setting but it wont let me remove it. My question is how to remove it, and generally how to make my phone set for a different region?
Will reset to factory setting help?
Should I upload different firmware?
I've added screen shots of the calendar setting and my firmware version.

For starters it is an international model with region specific firmware. Most likely Middle East. Easiest solution would be to flash a firmware for your region or a generic one in odin.

This worked on my G900FD: (UAE-LRX21T.G900FDXXS1BPC3)
1) Flashed stock Russian firmware with Odin
2) Factory reset
3) Flashed original UAE firmware using Smart Switch and phone serial number

No root required. Only stock firmware. No risk for Knox.

If any G900FD owner would like to try this, please let me know if this is working on other phones.

Why resurrect a 3 year old thread?
Why ask if any s5 owners have it working when this is in a s4 forum?
