The 24-year-old man was arrested in Portadown by police officers from the PSNI's Operation Dulcet, a taskforce set up to investigate the Union flag protests.
He was questioned about offences related to the protests which have taken place across the province.
A PSNI spokesman said the man had been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
The flag protests began in December and have the local economy has lost millions due to lack of footfall, while the policing bill stands at more than £15m.
On Saturday, two of the most high profile Union flag demonstrators appeared in court.

The 23-year-old was remanded into custody, while Jim Dowson, 48, a former British National Party fundraiser originally from Scotland but now residing at The Burn Road in Comber, was released on bail.
