Center span element under an image element (Ionic2)

How to centralize this span under the avatar using flex?

enter image description here

The avatar image is well centralized if I remove the span, but when I insert the span, even with

it displays on the right side.

Here is my HTML:

<ion-navbar *navbar>
<ion-avatar item-center>
<img src="img/bill-gates-avatar.jpg">
<span>Bill Gates</span>
<ion-content padding>
Content here...

That is my SCSS:

.tabs {

ion-navbar-section {
min-height: 16.6rem;

.toolbar {
min-height: 170px;

ion-avatar {
display: flex;
justify-content: center;
align-content: center;

ion-avatar img {
max-width: 8rem;
max-height: 8rem;
border-radius: 5rem;
border: 2px solid color($colors, light);

ion-avatar {
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: column;    /* align flex items vertically */
    justify-content: center;   /* center items vertically, in this case */
    align-items: center;       /* center single-line items horizontally, in this case */
    align-content: center;     /* center multi-line items horizontally, in this case */

An initial setting of a flex container is flex-direction: row, meaning items will align horizontally. For vertical alignment, override the default with flex-direction: column.

Note that when you switch flex-direction, keyword alignment properties such as align-items and justify-content switch direction, as well.

More details: In CSS Flexbox, why are there no "justify-items" and "justify-self" properties?
