Styling Navigation bar with logo and button

Issue

I have been trying for hours to style my navigation bar(which is horizontal at the top of the screen) so that my logo will show at left , menu on the center and the username with the logout button at right(all of them horizontally).I tried float ,position display, but nothing seems to work as i want.Instead the result is all the elements(logo,menu,username,logout button) to appear in the center.Any help would be appreciated.

HTML code

 <header>   
     <div class="page">
   <nav class="page__menu page__custom-settings menu">
    <div class="logo">
   <img src="images/logo.png">
    </div>
    <ul class="menu__list r-list">
      <li class="menu__group"><a href="index.php" class="menu__link r-link text-underlined">Main</a></li>
      <li class="menu__group"><a href="main.php" class="menu__link r-link text-underlined">Songs</a></li>
      <li class="menu__group"><a href="ratings.php" class="menu__link r-link text-underlined">Ratings</a></li>
    </ul>   
    
     <section id="login">
                <a href="registration/logout.php" class="button">Logout</a>
                <h1>User: <?php   echo $user_data['user_name']; ?></h1>
                </section>  
  </nav>     
    </header>

Solution

Here is the result what I fixed, please check and let me know.
You need to change justify-content: space-between instead center to the menu and add align-items: center and align-items: center to the #login.
Added the fixed css code.
Hope it is helpful~
