It was the battle cry of the Almogavars, a group of mercenaries from the Kingdom of Aragon. They spoke Catalan or Aragonese which in the 13th-14th centuries were really close languages.

The battle cry “Desperta ferres! Desperta!” was recorded by the cronist and almogavar Ramón Muntaner, who wrote in Catalan.

For that reason, the shirt is super cool and the font is rad as well.
