[Lazarus] Background colours etc.

On a form, I've got a TImage containing a star that changes colour to 
indicate the progress of a comms protocol I'm trying to get working. It 
normally shows a plain background, then a blue star showing that it's 
trying to connect, which changes to red or green depending on the 
result- and so on. The star images are coming from a bitmap in a 
TImageList on the same form.

I'm having a lot of hassle trying to get the background colour to match 
that of the form. I see from Google etc. that this has been an issue in 
the past: how should I be doing it, or should I give up and just use a 
square panel that changes colour?
