Layers can be thought of as transparent film, folded into a pile one on the other.
If there is nothing on the layer, one can see other layers located under it. When you create a new Flash clip it contains only one layer. A few more layers can be added to this layer and one can organize image layout and animation in the clip with its help.
The number of layers in the clip is limited only by your computer's memory. Increasing the number of layers does not lead to the increasing of file size which the clip will be recorded in. You can draw and edit objects in one layer without affecting objects placed at other layers.
Moreover, it is possible to create guide layers which simplify the process of drawing and editing.
Also, one can create mask layers in order to produce sophisticated effects.
Separate layers are used for sounds and actions. This allows you to quickly find all the actions and the sounds when you need to edit them.
