i Will be replacing the front flex disc ,new one has a star and JURID on one side,other side is blank .
Rechecking which side should face towards the rear as the bolt area design is different and no inscription of "this side rear" .

I hope they can go on either way, but good to know if they need to be installed only one way.

If the steel bushings are at same level on both sides it does not matter which side points to front. What matters is which bushings are bolted to front flange. Pay attention to that as you remove the old one.

can you elaborate, I'm not quite sure what you mean ( which bushings are bolted to the front flange )

On the photo you see there is a difference between the areas between two bushings. There is either holes or a recess next to the bushing. Depending how the plate is installed the area with holes or the recess gets compressed with forward driving torque.

Most flex disks are without the recess gap at bushing area , other versions have directions to install -this side rear . Above disk plain none.

It appears that ‘Jurid’ is the manufacturer. As has been pointed out there is a front and back.
My inclination is that the MB star should be the back.
You might look at the rear flex disk and see if there are any clues.

I can't say for sure for all of them, but on my car the front coupling has "diese seite zur gelenkw" written on it, which should face the propshaft.

Indeed, most had that inscription for the
rear facing side --towards propeller shaft --
some smaller size versions had flat bushings both sides and installed either way. The above disk has recess gaps at bushing that I assume should get compressed on the overrun but not sure ,hence my query.
