It's a "silver linden." I thought I knew "Linden" was filyra, but apparently there are either regional differences in terminology or they are slightly different plants. Greek wikipedia says they are synonymous and τίλια is also, which is the same as the GENUS. Will figure it out some other time. For now, here's the song that has flamouria:
 φλαμούρι + -ιά < ελληνιστική κοινή φλάμμουλα < λατινική flammula
