You DON'T want to create a standard Swap partition on a Flash disk.
Flash memory only allows a limited number of Write commands on a each area of the flash disk before the memory will eventually fail.
By limited, I mean something like 100,000 writes or so.
However, swap partitions do huge numbers of disk writes so that would use up your approx 100,000 writes very quickly.
See the following information about a file system that is designed to allow the user to do huge numbers of writes to a flash device without problems in linux:
