It is a MYTH that bumble bees cannot sting you. According to Wikipedia, which is almost always right, they can not only sting you, but their stinger lacks a barb like the honeybee has, so it can sting you multiple times.
The flower is called the echinacea, and flowers like this are where they get the active ingredients for the herbal medicine called "echinacea" that supposedly boosts your immune system and helps you fight off colds and things like that.
