Who is the Thief and why?

A Japanese ship was en route to the open sea. The captain went for a shower removing his ring and keeping it on the table. When he returned, he found it had gone missing. The captain immediately called the three suspected crew members and asked each one where they were and what were they doing in the last 15 minutes.

The cook said, “I was in fridge room getting meat for cooking.”

The Engineer , “I was working on generator engine.”

The seaman said, “I was on the mast correcting the flag which was upside down by mistake.”

The radio officer said, “I was messaging to a company about the arrival”

The navigation officer said, “I was sleeping in my cabin.”

The captain immediately caught the thief. How?

The seaman, because no matter what way the flag is it's the same way. It could have been the navigation officer, hell he was sleeping when he should have been working.
