Why can't I get the the icons to center using flexbox?

Here is the code. The icons are right aligned for some reason. Any suggestions? Thanks!


.flex-social { display: -webkit-flex; display: flex; -webkit-flex-direction: row flex-direction: row; -webkit-align-items: center; align-items: center; -webkit-justify-content: space-around; justify-content: space-around; list-style: none;


.social-item img{ padding-bottom: 3em; width: 3em; height: 3em; }


<ul div class="flex-social">
