Subnormality is not finite-upper join-closed
This article gives the statement, and possibly proof, of a subgroup property (i.e., subnormal subgroup) not satisfying a subgroup metaproperty (i.e., finite-upper join-closed subgroup property).

- 2-subnormality is not upper join-closed: Note that the same example works.
- Normality is upper join-closed
- Subnormality is permuting upper join-closed in finite: This result is also known as the Maier-Wielandt theorem.

Let be the symmetric group on the set . Let and be the dihedral groups given as follows:
Define . Then, is a two-element subgroup comprising and the identity permutation.
- is a 2-subnormal subgroup in both and . In particular, is subnormal in both and .
- The join of and is . This follows from some straightforward computation.
- is not a subnormal subgroup of . In fact, is a contranormal subgroup of : the normal closure of in is the whole of . This follows from the fact that transpositions generate the finitary symmetric group.
