Default Steering Column Wiring

I have very limited electrical knowledge but if I knew which wires in the steering column feed power and ground think I can figure it out with a test light. I have a home made wiring harness,

Wires coming out of the switch:

White
Red
Dark Green
2 Green Wires
2 Yellow Wires

Any guesses as to which wire goes to the flasher and which one goes to the stop light switch?

What column do you have?
Those are not stock wire colors coming out of the column from the turn signal switch. There is no ground wires and no 2 are the same color.

Thanks for the reply.
I have a stock 57 column but it was rewired before I got the car.
My guess:
White - brake switch
Red - Power feed from flasher
Dark Green ground for horn
2 Greens and 2 yellows are the turn signal lights

It was working whe I took it apart

That would be a SWAG.
