Are you on the free plan or the paid one?
Did you already have SSL configured prior to this?
You say you enable Flexile SSL? Is that a form of SSL from CloudFlare? Or are you referring to the style Flexile?

Doing some further checking... if you already have a valid SSL, then you should be in reality using the Full SSL option (if you are already running your HTTP server with SSL).
If you are wanting to use your current certificate with CloudFlare, I don' t believe the free plan offers that ability where you use it directly. You have to use the Universal one, and that takes about 24 hours to receive after you apply for it.

So, are you using any kind of redirection on your server end to redirect users from http to https? If so, that's the reason as enabling Flexible means CF will contact your server via http even if visitors browse your site via CF's https.
