Colored boxes in RadioGroup

Hi,

I have a radiogroup in which my users must be able to select a combination of three colors. They can choose out of 6 combinations. (RGB,GBR,BGR,RBG,GRB,BRG). I want each option to show up as a row of three little squares,each in 1 color.
What is the best way to do this? I can make 6 little bitmaps and show them in the radiogroup or maybe paint them on a canvas or something. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Use TGroupBox and TRadioButtons instead of TRadioGroup
Here is small example

object Form1: TForm1
  Left = 200
  Top = 108
  Width = 167
  Height = 128
  Caption = 'Form1'
  Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
  Font.Color = clWindowText
  Font.Height = -11
  Font.Name = 'MS Sans Serif'
  Font.Style = []
  PixelsPerInch = 96
  TextHeight = 13
  object ColorGroup: TGroupBox
    Left = 8
    Top = 8
    Width = 137
    Height = 81
    Caption = 'ColorGroup'
    TabOrder = 0
    object Shape1: TShape
      Left = 64
      Top = 24
      Width = 17
      Height = 17
      Brush.Color = clRed
    end
    object Shape2: TShape
      Left = 80
      Top = 24
      Width = 17
      Height = 17
      Brush.Color = clGreen
    end
    object Shape3: TShape
      Left = 96
      Top = 24
      Width = 17
      Height = 17
      Brush.Color = clBlue
    end
    object Shape8: TShape
      Left = 96
      Top = 48
      Width = 17
      Height = 17
      Brush.Color = clRed
    end
    object Shape9: TShape
      Left = 64
      Top = 48
      Width = 17
      Height = 17
      Brush.Color = clGreen
    end
    object Shape14: TShape
      Left = 80
      Top = 48
      Width = 17
      Height = 17
      Brush.Color = clBlue
    end
    object RGBBtn: TRadioButton
      Left = 8
      Top = 24
      Width = 50
      Height = 17
      Caption = 'RGB'
      TabOrder = 0
    end
    object GBRBtn: TRadioButton
      Left = 8
      Top = 48
      Width = 50
      Height = 17
      Caption = 'GBR'
      TabOrder = 1
    end
  end
end
