In order to serve the users of the wireless band, a new fractal shape dual-reverse-arrow fractal is introduced in this paper. This geometry is applied at the Microstrip Patch Antenna in order to obtain the multiband and miniaturized antenna. For the sake of simplicity, the patch chosen is an equatorial triangular patch. In this paper, the design of the two triangular patches are designed with the side lengths of a = 25 mm and a = 30 mm. On the basis of antenna’s performance characteristics, a comparable analysis is obtained for both the patch antennas. The results after simulation using the software HFSS demonstrates that both the designed antennas depict relatively good radiation pattern as compared to conventional antennas.
