The party was described in 2004 as follows:
"The Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP) is Sarawak's oldest political party. Founded in 1959, the party has changed from a left-wing, anti-Malaysia political entity into an establishment Barisan Nasional component party without losing the support of the Sarawak Chinese community. SUPP is the second biggest component party in the Barisan Nasional of Sarawak. SUPP objective is to establish by constitutional means a fair, just and equal society for all peoples irrespective of their racial origin or creed. To secure and maintain the establishment of a government based on Parliamentary Democracy. To promote and ensure the economic and cultural advancement of all races and particularly to improve the economic conditions of all workers and those who are economically backward."

The SUPP is a founding member of the Barisan National, the party alliance officially set up on 1 July 1974. Its local names are "砂拉 越人民合党" (Chinese) and "Parti Rakyat Bersatu Sarawak" (Malay).

The flag of SUPP is yellow with the party emblem in the middle. It can be seen on several photographs, taken on 22 November 2007, shown on the photo gallery of the SUPP website. The emblem of SUPP is a yellow disk with a red border charged with three interlaced yellow disks with a black border. Yellow, red and black are the national colours of Sarawak.
