Welcome to the board.

How are the cells colored?
Are they colored by Conditional Formatting? Or normal manual formatting?

No, countif (or any built in formula) can't do it.
It will require VBA

Check the Recommended addins thread, and look at the ASAP Utilities.
That addin has some functions that can count colors
