What are the color matches to attach a 3-speed ceiling fan?

I am trying to attach a universal 3-switch ceiling fan but cannot figure out the color matches. The colors of the wires are yellow, blue, purple, and brown. The slots in the switch are L, 1, 2, and 3. How can I find out the color-slot matches?

    Thanks Junkseller. Its a pretty old fan and we don't have the manual. We can't even find out what brand it is. There are no markings on the fan itself, at least none that we have seen.
