g.FillPie(new SolidBrush(Color.Green), 5, 5, 700, 700, 0, 90);
g.FillPie(new SolidBrush(Color.Yellow), 5, 5, 700, 700, 90, 180);
g.FillPie(new SolidBrush(Color.Red), 5, 5, 700, 700, 180, 315); // did you mean 270?
g.FillPie(new SolidBrush(Color.Green), 5, 5, 700, 700, 315, 360);

Then draw the white circle to bound it all.
