- flake:  Flake appears to go back to a prehistoric Germanic source which denoted the splitting of rocks into strata. This was *flak-, a variant of which produced English flaw  (which originally meant ‘flake’), the second syllable of whitlow  (which probably means etymologically ‘white fissure’), floe , and probably flag ‘stone slab’.
=> flag, flaw, floe, whitlow
- flake (n.)
- "thin, flat piece of snow; a particle," early 14c., also flauke, flagge, which is of uncertain origin, possibly from Old English *flacca "flakes of snow," or from cognate Old Norse flak "loose or torn piece" (related to Old Norse fla "to skin;" see flay); or perhaps from Proto-Germanic *flago- (cognates: Middle Dutch vlac, Dutch vlak "flat, level," Middle High German vlach, German Flocke "flake"); from PIE *plak- (1) "to be flat" (see placenta). From late 14c. as "a speck, a spot."
