Re: [dev] [st] Cannot display unicode characters for example '\U1F50D'

It's probably because the monaco font you are using in st doesn't
cover that unicode range.
You have to figure out what font can display that character. Maybe you
can find out what font your xfce terminal is actually using and update
your st config.h correspondingly?
