The split ring resonator [SRR] loaded clover leaf-shaped minkowsky fractal antenna for multiband applications is presented. This model fairs that the multiband presence of the antenna is a fall out of its fractal metamaterial nature with leaf patch. The antenna consists of iterations of minkowsky fractal with a complementary split ring resonator. In order to produce multifrequency band features, the SRR is positioned at the back of the substrate. The computer-generated results obtained monopole antenna which offers a multiple operating bands, 8.82 GHz by X band/12.76, 15.56, 15.56, and 17 GHz by Ku band. The size of the SRR-loaded clover leaf-shaped fractal antenna is 16 mm × 14 mm × 1.6 mm printed on FR4 substrate. The parametric studies plus simulated emission characteristics are existing. The proposed antenna effectively achieved return loss, VSWR, and fine radiation pattern with equitable gain across the operating bands.
