The fla file extension is used for projects created by Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash).
Adobe Flash is used for creating animations, banners, movies or whole apps, flash websites or games
.

The fla files are used for the basic project file, which are used in the development context. This file contains library of objects and source files needed for creating an animation or whatever flash developer wants.
It should contain all the settings, layers, scripts and libraries with vector graphics, sounds, pictures, texts, scripts, videos etc.

After its development, a Flash project needs to be "published" or "compiled" for the use on the Web. It then gets a swf extension which can be played with an Adobe Flash player.
