How about using a construct like this:

  set the backgroundColor of graphic Y of group X to "blue"

I am not sure from your message whether you know that you can specify
objects by their owners like this, but you can. So the statement above will
single out graphic Y in group X, even if other groups also contain a
graphic named or numbered "Y".
