[ 1 ] The present invention refers to a protection that combines the features of enabling the identification of drinking glasses and similar containers and the protection of the users from diseases that may be caught by contact with the recipient in one single element, thus enabling more security in the identification of the element in use while reducing simple contact contamination.

[2] Nowadays, the existing methods supply only one of these features, without the characteristic of protecting against transmissible diseases triggered mainly by contact or use of the same container, that may be a glass, cup, mug and others, by several people, not allowing the container to provide it's complete hygiene necessity. The containers such as drinking glasses, cups, mugs and others are used only for their normal purposes, to provide a fraction of a drink from a larger container that may be a bottle can or plastic, but do not provide the necessary protection to the consumer due to the lack of the necessary identification in order not to mix the container with others that look the same, thus allowing contamination by the improper use of the same container by people contaminated with transmissible diseases that may come in contact with the same container of drinking material.
