What is wrong with this code?

I do not understand what is wrong with this code, it is the last objective of the flexbox lay out challenge.

Hey Jaime!

Remove the display property from .secondary and change the order property to -1. Because the original value of order is 0, the secondary column has to have a lesser numerical value in order to be put in front.

Hope that helps!

It solved it, I guess it is redundant to add the display property to the secondary class.
