Thus, in comparing two combustible liquids, the one with the lower flash point would tend to be the one which is more likely to form a flammable concentration in air and is thus considered the more dangerous of the two)

Britannica(Flash point (Physics); the lowest temperature at which a liquid (usually a petroleum product) will form a vapor in the air near its surface that will "flash" or briefly ignite, on exposure to an open flame. The flash point is a general indication of the flammability or combustibility of a liquid. Below the flash point, insufficient vapor is available to support combustion.)
