No. You must use a version compatible with version of Safari you are using - that which is installed with 10.6.8.
You can locate older versions of Flash but you must use an Intel compatible version as well as one compatible with your version of OS X.

Sorry I should have elaborated more. I have Safari 5.1.8 on Snow Leapord and and Flash 10x installed but Safari says Flash blocked and when I click on it prompts me to download the newwer version, Flash 11, wich I cant use do to compatibility problams with certain oldder things. So how can I unblock Flash 10?

Thanx for your help but the link leads to information about Java and not flash.

Two bugs, one affecting Apple's Mac platform and another attacking Microsoft's Windows, exploit certain Flash player vulnerabilities to install malware onto users' systems, reports ArsTechnica. While users of other operating systems like Linux have yet to report attacks, Adobe's advisory notes the exploit affects all platforms.
Designated as CVE-2013-0634, the first vulnerability targets the Safari and Firefox Web browsers running on OS X, and is also being used as a trojan to deploy Microsoft Word documents containing malware. For Mac users, the flaw affects Adobe Flash Player version 11.5.502.146 or earlier.
On March 1 Apple again blocked Flash Player for Lion and Mountain Lion:
You should uninstall any previous version first, and repair permissions after installing the new version.
If you still get a ‘plug-ins blocked’ message:
You can check here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/ to see which version you should install for your Mac and OS. The latest version,10.3.183.23 or later, is for Intel Macs only running Tiger or Leopard, as Adobe no longer support the PPC platform. Version 11.4.402.265 or later is for Snow Leopard onwards.
You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
and also that you follow the instructions closely, such as closing ALL applications first before installing. You must also carry out a permission repair after installing anything from Adobe.

Thanx for your help but that will give me Flash version 11 wich I dont want. I need Flash version 10.
I needed to get the harddrive on my Mac replaced and a few days ago (before the replacement) I was using Flash 10 but after the new harddrive and reinstall of Snow Leopard I get the Flash blocked error.

I've not tested here - but editing/removing /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta. plist then restarting (no - see edit below) should help out : there's a
com.macromedia.Flash Player.plugin : MinimumPlugInBundleVersion section
it'll be regularly re-created/updated unless you disable 'automatically install important security updates' in System Preferences - Security, or lock the file / replace for testing.
edit : don't reboot... or the file will be replaced.
