It's a Nelumbo. Not sure which species though. Maybe Nelumbo lutea, which has white to pale yellow flowers.

Thank you, Darwiniensis.
It looks like the Asiatic Lotus Nelumbo nucifera?

Sorry, part of my message got cut off. It was intended to say:
"Possibly a white form of Nelumbo nucifera or one of several white-flowered hybrids."

Slocum lists 4 white forms of N. nucifera (though the usual form is pink).
