Anything is submittable; the question is whether it's registerable.

In my humble opinion -- I am not a decision maker on anything more
complicated than where commas go -- no, it's not registerable.  It is
a modern depiction; it is not a phoenix with flames erupting under his
butt.  Those wings look more like flames, as well.

By the way, the head should face dexter unless explicitly blazoned.
For period style, the head should face dexter.

With the charges like that, especially a long skinny vertical charge
above the point, not necessarily.

Above a per chevron or chevron, I would expect three charges to also
be in chevron.  The crosses crosslet fitchy are "in fess".

It would fill the space much better, and be a little closer to period
style, if there were just two crosses.
