You had one too many flexboxes, so I tweaked the code a bit. And realized
we put too much under the @media, so shifted that out. (And fixed your
indentation; you need an editor that makes tabs visible. :P)

Also felt remorse over deleting the 'order' bit, so I just fixed the sample
rendering. It makes for a more interesting example. :)
