    Alas, U+3E1A has one cross too much ;-)

    What do you mean by "triple": How are those crosses aligned?

    If they are written side-by-side, you could use three instances of
    one of the following characters:
    U+00D7 Multiplication sign
    U+02DF Modifier letter cross accent

    If they, however, are on top of each other, there seems
    to be no way but using some hack, such as
    U+16DD U+0353

    Or, perhaps, you could (ab)use asterisks, or dots instead, e. g.
    U+2042 Asterism (i. e. 3 asterisks, in a triangle shape)
    U+2051 Two asterisks aligned vertically
    U+22EE Vertical ellipsis

    Best wishes,
