When the arch of your foot collapses upon putting weight on it causing your foot to roll inward.
I assume you meaning over-pronation of the foot when walking or running. This video on YouTube does a good job of explaining the condition.
Pronation is a combination of movements in three planes. Basically, it is the inward rotation of the foot and ankle as you transfer weight to that limb. You generally land on your outside heel during walking and shift weight over to the big toe as you then step off. This occurs so that you land on a soft, shock absorbing limb and then pushoff a rigid limb for efficiency and power. Over pronation occurs when your foot and ankle rotate too much. This may or may not be related to a flat foot. Over prontation can result in pain and overuse of the tendons of the ankle and foot. Check out my article on choosing the correct running shoes. It goes into this in greater detail.
