Spanish term or phrase: Flocaduras
More from the description of Charles V's arms:
"El asta, forrada de terciopelo rojizo, estaba guarnecida con dos flocaduras en su tercio superior y con al menos una hilera vertical de tachones dorados para la sujección del tejido"

Not much help the context here is it :-)
