I want to be able to display colored emojis in XTerm, for example those from Noto Color Emoji of the fonts-noto-color-emoji font package. Like this question, but specifically for XTerm.
I faced the same issue, found a workaround. When starting xterm with a font emojis show up (font-symbola might be required):
xterm -fa '$FONTNAME'
xterm -fa 'Overpass Regular' -fs 11
xterm -fa 'Dank Mono' -fs 11

❯ echo "👍🥳🏆 "
Required, but never shown
