I have seen images of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Christ Jesus, St. Joseph, and other saints on stained glass windows.  
Are there rules governing what images go on stained glass windows?

Yes - decided by the window's owner. My local Hells Angels Chapter Headquarters has a rather fetching one which includes a young Jane Fonda as Barbarella and a young Carrie Fisher as the captive Princess Leia. Skimpy bikinis are the rule in that one.

The stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral in France are almost 1,000 years old.
