Is this a Marigold?

I grew this from seed collected in a park in Madeira and have always assumed it is a Marigold. Is it?

    It certainly looks like a marigold - a beautiful one at that.

    I can't see which leaves go with the flower. Could it be coreopsis, or is defintely a marigold?

    Pot marigold,  Calendula officinalis.  The petals can be used as a substitute for saffron.
