.container {
  display: -webkit-box;
  display: -moz-box;
  display: -ms-flexbox;
  display: -moz-flex;
  display: -webkit-flex;
  display: flex;

How big is the content inside your element?

It might be a case of too much content for flexbox to manage on element of the smaller height. Otherwise the content will overflow out of its container.
