Yes, because gnash is an open-source (re)implementation of Flash Player, 
compatible with a large part of the Flash7 specification, so that you don't 
need Adobe's player to play Flash format multimedia files. Did you actually 
check out (i.e., visit _and_ read) the gnash website, if you're asking this?

By the way, this has nothing to do with drivers; Flash is a data-container 
format, which requires a program (knowing the specification, which is 
sort-of-open, with the emphasis lying on "sort-of," not "open," for Flash) to 
interpret, not a device. The word "driver" is reserved for software providing 
access to the latter (at least in my vocabulary), or at least something 
happening in kernel-space.
