The graffiti was daubed on the wall of Coleraine District Master George Duddy's home.
Mr Duddy's home was the scene of a similar incident in August when a Union flag was removed from the property.
The incident follows similar attacks on senior members of the institution in the Coleraine area.
An Orange Order spokesman said: "This latest sinister attack is deeply concerning and clearly yet another attempt by republicans to suppress Orangeism in the Coleraine area.
"The threatening nature of the graffiti is alarming and the reference linking Mr Duddy to a paramilitary organisation is as absurd as it is sickening.
"We would urge those involved in such activity to desist immediately."
The incident happened in the Drumaquill Road area of the town sometime between 10.20pm and 10.40pm.
A police spokesman said they were treating the incident as a 'hate crime' and appealed for information.
