Ranked Flex Restrictions

Dear reader, I'm plat 1 on solo/duo ranked. My friends are silver 1 solo/duo ranked. Flex 5v5 I'm silver 1 and my friends are gold 4 and silver 1. Currently we can que up as 3 in flex 5v5 ranked. Question: If I were to rank solo/duo up to Dia 4, could I still play ranked flex with my friends? This is what riot FAQ says: ["FLEX QUEUE LIMITATIONS Flex queue is easy! Anyone can play one tier up or down (Gold with Silver/Platinum, Platinum with Gold/Diamond, etc.). Iron can play two tiers up, with Silver players. Master, Grandmaster, and Challenger all count as a single tier."](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/204010760-Ranked-Play-FAQ#top) It's not clear for me because I don't know if it looks at the solo/duo rank or the flex rank. I'm on EUW if that matters. Thanks for reading. With kind regards, KingOfStrikers
