I think it's the Latin acronym for 'The Senate and People of Rome', but I'm not sure.

Senatus Populusque Romanus. The Q is in Populusque.

S.P.Q.R. stands for "Senatus Populusque Romanus." ["The Senate and People of Rome."]

It was the mark of the Roman Empire that can still be seen today on buildings in Rome.

Senatus=Senete
Populus=People
-que=and
Romanus=Rome

Senatus Populusque Romanus

We read it in this order:

Senatus que Populus Romanus
The senate and people of rome.

No word for 'the' in Latin.

Romanus is a second declension adjective (here masculine nominative singular, agreeing with populus)that means roman or of Rome. The latin word for Rome is Roma, first declension.

"Senatus Populusque Romanus."

Yeah, sorry, my mistake. I should've known that after 2 years without practicing Latin I would start writing nonsense.
