[fil-fot] /ˈfɪl fɒt/

a swastika.
a rare word for swastika

supposedly a native name for the swastika (used as a decorative device), but only attested in a single, damaged c.1500 manuscript, and there it may refer to any sort of device used to fill the bottom (foot) of a design. “[I]t is even possible that it may have been a mere nonce-word” [OED].
