The far-right organisation is whites only and its policies have been described as neo-fascist.
It is alleged the leaflets, which label the white race as "Britain's most endangered species", were being given out in the Tates Avenue area in the south of the city.
The men, aged 33 and 49, have been arrested on suspicion of the distribution of written material with intent to incite hatred.
South Belfast MLA Conall McDevitt said people in the area had passed the leaflets on to police.
"This sends out a very clear message that this is a community made up of a proud, tolerant and diverse range of people who will not accept discrimination in any form," he said.
"Leaflets with this offensive and overtly racist tone have no place in the streets of South Belfast. I commend the community for standing up against those responsible for such unacceptable material."
