With the limited informatiion you have provided, it appears that you have a classic problem. That is, when relatively warm, moist air comes in contact with a cold surface, the water vapor will condense out and form liquid water.
What I don't understand is what putting a new roof on had to do with the problem. Could it be that at the same time (or same season) the new roof was installed, other remodeling took place that would have changed the air flow in the house? Somehow this moist air is getting up above your drywall ceiling and insulation and condensing out on the cold roof surface. Is the ceiling open on one end that allows this air flow?
I don't understand how you installed ridge vents and soffit vents on a flat roof. I don't think we are getting the complete story here. Please post back with more information if you can.
