How do you create a button to start an animation, in Flash CS6/ActionScript 3?

I have created an animation of some Windmill Sails rotating, it is on a layer called "sails", and has an instance name of "sails". I have also created a button, which is on a layer called "button", and has an instance name of "button". I have also converted them both to a symbol (the sails are a movie clip, and the start button is a button).


What code do I need to write so that when I click the button, the animation starts playing?


Thank you for any help.
