My first thought was that it was a chamomile, too. I just haven't seen any images that fully support that. I do think it is probably some variety of chamomile though, the more I study the web for it...though most seem to have yellow flowers and this is very white.

Could it be Chamomile? It looks very much like it, there are many varities.

looked up the Calendulus as mentioned by fadinah_green - the flower is way more compact and the petals not a spread out as the pics I saw of the Calendulus. the leaves actually resemble chrysanthemum leaves far more than the zinnia leaves as mentioned by gardengeek but I can see the resmbk,ance in the flower itself to some of the white zinnia pics

I think it also looks a lot like a Calendula Officinalis.. I have a picture on a catalog of a white one.. but I could not find one like it on the net.

Could be a Gerbera or a Zinnia

If you have a magnifying glass, and can get an upclose picture of the center of the flower, that would help to be sure.
