We consider arc spaces for the compositions of Plücker and Veronese embeddings of the flag varieties for simple Lie groups of types ADE. The arc spaces are not reduced and we consider the homogeneous coordinate rings of the corresponding reduced schemes. We show that each graded component of a homogeneous coordinate ring is a cocyclic module over the current algebra and is acted upon by the algebra of symmetric polynomials. We show that the action of the polynomial algebra is free and that the fiber at the special point of a graded component is isomorphic to an affine Demazure module whose level is the degree of the Veronese embedding. In type A1 (which corresponds to the Veronese curve), we give the precise list of generators of the reduced arc space. In general type, we introduce the notion of global higher level Demazure modules, which generalizes the standard notion of the global Weyl modules, and identify the graded components of the homogeneous coordinate rings with these modules.
