Not trying to sway you from flash at all though, it can be a great tool. Heck, even brothercake used flash in one of his new sites. Though, it isn't for navigation purposes...
I really love flash, though. I would eventually like to do a page entirely in Flash. I know this is extremely limited accessability, but it would be an optional version. http://www.blondergroup.com has a somewhat comparable example...but I want to do better.
What have you done as far as nav bars in the past that you found to be the best?

I'll come down a big "no" for flash navigation - for accessibility reasons; exactly the same reason why you hesitate at pure-JS navigation is why you should hesitate at pure flash navigation.
My favoured approached is dynamic menus based on semantic XHTML - you get menus for JS capable browsers but everything else can still see the navigation tree; like this - http://www.brothercake.com/scripts/listmenu/ (and if you look at them in moz with JS disabled the menus still work )
