Well, I suppose it isn't a lens hood.

No.

Pol-filter perhaps?

Yes, in one case. Which? And for what reason can a polarizer remove lens flare and/or its purpleness?

2nd one? Well, the flare is a reflection and as such polarised light? *guessing*

It's image two of three, yes. And yes, you are on the right track. Could you develop your thought a bit and what kind of polarizer is required in this case?

Well, since it's reflections from light that's already passed through the filter, a simple filter like the ones in polaroid sunglasses could work? A circular polarizer would probably be less effective.
