UEFA says its disciplinary panel also fined the Denmark forward €100,000 ($126,000).
Bendtner can appeal the decision.
He raised his shirt and lowered the top of his shorts slightly, revealing the name of a betting firm across the top of his underpants, after scoring his second goal in a 3-2 loss against Portugal last Wednesday.
