I made an img "whiteSquare.png" with GIMP
and imported it into the top layer of my stack, locked it, set it to 
and the put this in a "Flash" button:

on mouseUp
     set the vis of img "whiteSquare.png" to true
     wait 5 ticks
     set the vis of img "whiteSquare.png" to false
end mouseUp

Thank you Richard!
