With rsvgoverlay:

gst-launch uridecodebin uri=file:/tmp/c.avi ! ffmpegcolorspace ! \
rsvgoverlay fit-to-frame=true data='<svg viewBox="0 0 320 200"> \
<rect fill="#ccc" x="150" y="90" width="20" height="20"></rect></svg>' ! \
ffmpegcolorspace ! autovideosink

The fit-to-frame is not necessary per se since you know the video
resolution, but it will allow the plugin to fit the viewBox to the video
resolution when the resolution is different.
