In this paper, we develop a multi-band circularly polarized planar antenna operating at 28 GHz and 60 GHz for 5G and WiGig applications. The antenna is composed of a square slot antenna fed by a proximity coupled microstrip line and loaded by grounded square loop and three tilted angle strips. Grounded square patch introduces resonance at 60 GHz frequency while the strips introduce resonances at 28 GHz. The square slot is designed as a wide-band antenna which can support these two resonances.
