The Romans also gave it the name Marygold as the bloom period for Calendula coincided with the festival that celebrated the Virgin Mary. There is also a Greek legend about four wood Nymphs that fell in love with Apollo the Sun God. The Nymphs became jealous of each other and neglected thier duties to Apollos sister Goddess Diana. This upset her so she turned them into four dull white flowers. This in turn upset Apollo who used his most golden rays to colour the flowers the brilliant golden colour we see today
