Create an *.rc file with the following contents:

//----------------------------------
MAINICON ICON "YourIcon.ico"
//----------------------------------

And make sure you have an icon file named YourIcon.ico in the same folder. Next add:

{$R 'Yourfile.res' 'YourFile.rc'}

to the main source of your project. This will compile the YourFile.rc to an *.res file and include it in your console application. Since consoles normally don't have a *.res file with icons, this icon will be the one that's displayed.
