It is the Antrrhinum (not sure of the spelling) or Snapdragon,
 a common garden flower which comes in many colour combinations.
If you press the sides of the flower, it opens its "mouth".

In India it is more commonly called Dog-Flower, for the same reason
that Padmini described. Antirrhinum majus is the full name, I think.

Indeed Antirrhinum majus
in german it it is called "L�wenmaul" Lions jaw, for the same reason.
