Just give a non-default icon to the window, and that's what you'll see on the
taskbar. If you use Glade UI definition files, it would look like this:

  <object class="GtkApplicationWindow" id="my_main_window_id">
    <property name="icon_name">name-of-the-icon-of-your-app</property>

And in Glade itself it's just like any other property.

Obviously, you'll need to install the icon in an appropriate place
(share/icons/hicolor/<size>/apps/<name-of-the-icon-of-your-app>.png) and run
gtk-update-icon-cache for it to be found.
