    Why don't you use SVG for the purpose? Since XEP 3.5,
    you can get a crossed circle by just the following:

    <fo:instream-foreign-object >
       <svg:svg xmlns:svg=""
                height="24pt" width="24pt"
                viewBox="-100 -100 200 200"
                style="fill:none; stroke:black; stroke-width:1">
         <svg:circle r="50"/>
         <svg:line x1="-100" x2="100"/>
         <svg:line y1="-100" y2="100"/>

    </fo:instream-foreign-object >

    The next version of XEP (3.6, due to appear in September)
    will have an option to use grayscale and CMYK to specify
    SVG colors; so it will be possible to create CMYK bars,

    Best regards,
