Yes, very much so:
"Bras d'honneur: Geste injurieux (simulacre d'erection)" says Nouveau Petit Robert, Dictionnaire de la langue francaise.
It is described by Geneviève Calbris and Jacques Montredon in Des gestes et des mots pour le dire, DIC Mini-dictionnaires, Clé International, 1986:
"...made by placing one hand at the crook of the opposite arm and lifting - or extending - the latter, fist balled, to figure the male member in erection."
