How to store a color and location in a matrix?

I am trying to locate the colors in this image and put them into a matrix. My thoughts were to somehow define the colors, then mark their location and put them into a 3x3 matrix. I also have a BW image of this. This is for a Rubiks cube, so all sides will have to be checked like this, then be compiled into a 3d model of the cube. From there I should be able to figure out a way to solve it.

#Easy way (Not Efficient too)
test_image=imread('image_file_name.jpeg'); %Change the image file name with format
for i=1:2%rows
for j=1:2%colm
Here cell_data is a cell array having R,G,B color values of individual pixel, whereas cell element indices represent the indices of the pixel itself.

Do not use such a complex, inefficient, indirect, insecure, slow, obfuscated approach for accessing the fields of HANDLES. You do NOT need to call evil EVAL, when you can simply use the syntax shown here:
For example, replace this anti-pattern code:
color = eval(sprintf('get(handles.%s,''String'')',current));
with this neat, simple, and very efficient code:
color = get(handles.(current),'String');
Tip for the future: if you find yourself using EVAL (120 times!) just to do something as simple as accessing your data, then you are doing something wrong.
