I defined the sidebar as a symbol. Is there a way to select the active icon in every page? I mean, is it possible to change the icon colors in every instances?

Yes, you can. You need to nest the Symbols.

  1. Create 2 states of every icon on the tab bar; Convert them to Symbol;
  2. Put them on the tab bar(Whatever the state, you can modify it latter), then create the Symbol.
  3. Select the tab bar Symbol, then you can override each icon's states in the properties panel.
