Then we will give it a child text widget with a white color in order for it to be clearly visible.. In this way, we will see the default Flutter container alignment. Just make sure that the container is big so you can clearly see the default alignment. See the below code:

          height: 200,
          width: 300,
          child: Text(
            'Default container alignment',
            style: TextStyle(fontSize: 17, color: Colors.white),
